 Post subject: That white boat...
PostPosted: Fri Jun 29, 2007 5:32 pm 
Just wondering Gordon. In a few recent video reviews, I noticed the far away subject you sometimes zoom in on is that boat moving along the water. Is that a ferry or tourist steamer of some sort? :lol:

While Gordon is enjoying his bowl of cereal I thought I'd butt in to say it's the steam-ship (TSS) Earnslaw.

Real Journeys operate it - for more see http://www.realjourneys.co.nz/Main/Earnslaw/. Travelling on a diesel powered boat after a trip on the TSS Earnslaw seems quite mundane. Recommended.

Bob.

Cheers Bob, yep, that's the Earnslaw and it's a great tourist attraction in Queesntown. In fact they do a season pass and many locals use it to just head over for some afternoon tea and cakes in a very civilised setting - although having now personally seen the farm demo five times, I'd still say it's worth doing it all!

There's some more Queenstown tips here:
